If You’re Living With Chronic Pain, Regenerative Medicine Could Be the Answer

Are you living with constant pain that doesn’t seem to end? If so, you’re not alone. The CDC reports that over one-fifth of American adults are suffering from chronic pain.

While everyone experiences pain sometimes, it usually goes away on its own or with the help of over-the-counter pain relievers. But, for chronic pain sufferers, the pain lasts and lasts — sometimes for years.  

At Physical Medicine & Wellness of Northern Kentucky, we understand the debilitating impact chronic pain has on your health, mental wellbeing, and quality of life. That’s why we offer regenerative therapy, also known as stem cell therapy. This safe and effective treatment can alleviate chronic pain without unwanted side effects or risks. 

What is stem cell therapy?

Everyone has stem cells. They're unspecialized cells that can divide and repopulate in the body. Stem cells are designed to grow and repair areas in the body that become worn or damaged.

Stem cell therapy is a process in which stem cells are harvested and injected into the treatment area on your body. Physical Medicine & Wellness of Northern Kentucky uses stem cells from your own body rather than embryonic or donor cells. 

These cells then divide and replicate to develop into the different types of cells your body needs to repair the existing damage. The types of cells they become depends on where in your body they’ve been injected. 

Stem cell therapy is an emerging field, so it’s important to seek treatment from board-certified medical doctors, like Dr. Dammel.

How do stem cells help chronic pain?

Stem cell therapy offers effective relief from chronic pain that lasts for years. During the treatment, Dr. Dammel uses your own body’s natural healing properties to promote tissue regeneration and repair where needed. This process will help ease your pain so you can live a better life.

What’s more? Unlike pills and medicinal injections that enter the bloodstream and impact the whole body, stem cells reduce inflammation at the source for a potent treatment that keeps the pain away.

The highly targeted nature of stem cell therapy ensures an optimal outcome for patients receiving treatment at Physical Medicine & Wellness of Northern Kentucky. The natural anti-inflammatory properties of stem cells also reduce the time needed to heal, meaning you’ll be back on your feet quickly.

If you’re experiencing chronic pain, this innovative therapy might be the answer to giving you a more comfortable life.

What can I expect during treatment?

First, we will evaluate your pain and determines if stem cell therapy is the right course of treatment for you. 

Before your treatment begins, you'll receive light anesthesia and a local numbing medicine. Then, we will harvest stem cells from your bone marrow. Next, the sample is run through a centrifuge at a lab to separate the cells. Once separated, we reinject the stem cells into your body at the site of pain. 

The procedure doesn’t take long, and most people experience little to no discomfort. What’s more? You’ll be able to go home and get back to your life the same day. And since we use your own stem cells, there’s almost no risk of negative side effects.
